Aon plc is making the best of its new London domicile. With its roots in Chicago, the home of one of the National Football League’s most historic teams, Aon has embarked on bringing NFL football to the UK
Aon announced the expansion of the firm’s partnership with the NFL, which will “allow Aon to continue to bring cross-cultural experiences to its clients in the London market.”
The NFL will play two regular-season games in London for the first time this year as part of the International Series, but the Chicago Bears aren’t involved. The Minnesota Vikings host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, September 29, and the Jacksonville Jaguars host the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, October 28.”
“The NFL understands that the issues Aon helps clients with every day and that are core to our business – talent, health, risk, retirement, data and analytics and capital – also drive successful performance and results in sports,” said Patrick Pierce, Aon’s global director of sponsorships.
“One of the shared qualities of sport and business is that the outcome is unknown. Managing this risk successfully allows a great team to deliver great results, whether on the field of play or at work. We are thrilled to further our partnership with the NFL and again demonstrate the capabilities that empower results for Aon’s clients in the UK and around the world.”
Aon will serve as an official sponsor of the two sold-out NFL games scheduled this autumn at Wembley Stadium in London.
On the other side of the pond, Aon has also planted itself in the UK’s Football [Soccer] Premier League with the sponsorship of one of its most historic teams, Manchester United, which it took over from AIG in 2010.
In 2013, Aon announced a new eight-year partnership agreement with Manchester United, including sponsorship of the team’s training complex, training kit, international tours and leadership of the Manchester United Business Network and the Manchester United Foundation.
